Oklahoma state Rep. Charles Key has wants to extend an invitation to you to learn about Health Care Exchanges, The Affordable Care Act, and what we can do in Oklahoma to protect Oklahoma.
Three meetings will be held that are free and open to the public and features talent and expertise from the highly respected Heartland Institute, a nonprofit research organization dedicated to finding and promoting ideas that empower people.
Benjamin Domenech, managing editor of Health Care News and a research fellow at The Heartland Institute is the guest speaker sharing his knowledge on the subject at all three meetings.
Rep. Key writes;
Health Exchanges have become a controversial issue as they are mandated by The Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare. Many states have challenged their constitutionality and others have passed laws nullifying implementation of the Affordable Care Act, or parts of it, in their state. These exchanges are the cornerstone of The Affordable Care Act and without the exchanges ObamaCare cannot be fully implemented. Understanding our options as a state are very important not only because this law is a major piece of legislation but because it will fundamentally change our way of life.Each presentation will not be the same although each will include discussion of the effect of Health Care Exchanges & Reform information.

The Supreme Court may hear and rule on the constitutionality of the the individual mandate this year. In the meantime we must take steps to protect our health care system from being nationalized. Understanding the Health Exchanges is absolutely critical to preventing a complete takeover of our personal health care.
